Changes in the UK warranty market

By: Keith Barrett

The transformation is occurring because of the way in which warranties are now sold. Many of us have probably taken it for granted that we should purchase these agreements from car retailers, such as dealerships and car supermarkets.

Such establishments spent heavily on advertising and have always had a high local profile. Given that there seemed to be few other options, many of us saw them as the only show in town.

Their dominance has also meant that it's been difficult to see whether they have been offering value for money. After all, since we were unaware of alternatives, there was little to compare with.

Some people have always noted that car retailers have often acted as middlemen.

In effect, they've been selling on other companies policies. There's been a suspicion that cutting out the middlemen might lead to a fall in prices.

Testing such a theory has not been easy. It's relied upon being able to directly contact independent warranty specialists.

Fortunately, such a course of action has now become much easier. A number of specialist car warranty companies have been looking to the internet as a means of attracting new customers.

In the rush to attract new customers, they've been looking to offer better deals. When you add in the fact that lower sales costs are able to be passed on to car owners in the form of lower prices, it's clear that prices should start to fall.

If you want a better deal on car warranties then you can take advantage of the new landscape by buying cover online.
